Lord, We Ask, We Seek, We Pray

 Youtube Channel Video Devo

“Lord, We Ask, We Seek, We Pray”

Matthew 7:7 NIV

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.


One of my favorite songs we play and sing at church now is “Ask, Seek, Pray” by River Valley Worship.  I remember one of the first Sundays we played this on praise team and it totally captured my heart.  The more and more we sing and play this song, it’s such a powerful song.  This past Sunday at church, as I was playing drums to this song, it was one of the most powerful moments for me as I played.  It became such a powerful prayer and time of worship.


I wanted to share the bridge of the song with you:


Pour out Your Spirit on our praise
Come let revival fill this place
Stir up our faith for greater things
Lord, we ask, we seek, we pray

All this to lift up and proclaim
Jesus Christ, the highest name
Send us Your power, light the flame
Lord, we ask, we seek, we pray


Every time I think about these words, I’m just blown away at the majestic anthem it is!  It is such a powerful proclamation.  Think about these words.  We are asking the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and the place we worship.  We are asking Him to move in a very mighty way.  It’s so powerful!  I think of the encounters people had throughout Scripture where they were totally overcome with the power of God. 


Friends, if you’re not familiar with this song, I invite you to find it on YouTube and listen to the powerful words in this song.  It’s just such a powerful time of worship listening to it, singing it and taking the words in as we come to the Throne of God. 


The words I’ve shared here are powerful as we ask God to stir up our faith, send us His power and light a huge flame so that we can shine bright for Him.


Are we asking, seeking and praying?  Are we asking God to totally fill us?  Are we seeking Him with all we are?  Are we praying earnestly for Him to light a flame in our hearts to praise and serve Him?  I hope so. 


This song has inspired me to ask, seek, and knock more often so that I can encounter God in new and powerful ways.


Lord, we ask, we seek, we pray!
